Jailed Bohemia Interactive Devs Denied Bail

Eurogamer has word from a Czech news report that the pair of Bohemia Interactive developers arrested in September in Myrina, Greece for Espionage have been refused bail. They are now awaiting trial, and word is this process is being delayed considerably by strikes in Greece, though apparently "strike season" is over. The pair's families are now apparently attempting to get the Czech president and prime minister to step in, claiming their foreign ministry has let them down. "Our boys no longer tell us on the phone that it's alright, that they're handling it," one of the mothers said. "After the court's decision we only hear from them something that no parent ever wants to hear: Mom, dad, please save us."

I don't remember the last time a Christian cut someone's head off or suicide bombed someone to be honest just for not being Muslim.

Yeah, that just seems pretty simple to me too. Why on earth would you ever go to Iran or any other muslim country if you're an American?

A bunch of people in my volunteer program did Kuwait before they came here. Most of them are far-left liberals trying to prove how understanding and accepting of Muslim culture they are, from what I could tell, though the girls still bitched about how they had to dress to avoid persecution.

At least Kuwait is somewhat West-friendly though, can't imagine why an idiot would go to Iran of all places. I met a Syrian here in Georgia who tried talking me into a trip to Tehran, which was amusing. He swore up and down Syria and Iran were friendly.

I don't know about these two in Greece...

...but the Iranian shit (including the hikers from a couple of years ago)... If you are American... don't enter, or even go near a country that hates you for your nationality, DUMB ASSES. (Even if you have relatives there)

That's just fucking common sense.

I say it again, in the scheme of things, Greece just does not matter. They know this. And this is just some way to puff themselves up to say something on the Worlds Stage.

If however they were smart, they`d have dealt civilly with this issue and it would have already turned into a non issue. Instead they chose to make themselves look like complete azzholes. Imbeciles really. They could have made themselves look like Heros.

Yup, the guys did something dumb. Something dumb that hardly deserves anywhere near the treatment they are getting. Slap em on the wrists, ask for a public oppology.... DONE. But nope. Peeps ingeneral and the Greek Governement just feel the need to overreact, and GrandStand.

I`ll bet on any given day of the year, there is no one here or anywhere that hasn`t done something equally as dumb. So don`t stand too high up on your podiums, and hold your noses too high in the clouds. Wouldn`t want you to get any nosebleeds. ;p

Hey hey hey hey hey. Don't be dissing the country that brought us spanakopita.

These two guys did something really dumb. Like really REALLY dumb. Now they are suffering the consequences. At least they didn't do it in the US or Russia, though. Then they would've really been screwed.

Amir Mirza Hekmati is still held in Iran, over a year later.


Yeah, but Iran is a piece of shit country, so you'd expect that from them. Greece likes to pretend that they're this awesome, upstanding part of Europe, but yeah... We're not seeing it, Greece.

Creston

Greece is also a piece of shit country who thinks they're a superpower.

Yeah, it just seems like his case doesn't seem to get as much attention, despite being held longer.

I love how a trial is delayed by Greece being on fucking strike. Your pretention of being an actual civilization is falling apart rapidly, Greece.

While I still say that these guys were stupid, you'd expect that their government would have made some discreet calls to Greece by now and gotten their release arranged.

I wonder exactly what these two guys got up to to make themselves so suspicious to be thrown in prison. Scaled a fence? Maybe you can get away with that in Czech Republic..
14 frames of video, according to Greece. A half second, and you're in jail for 2+ months.

EU member states infighting.

Unless they would be turks I dont see a reason for this to be that serious.
Greece seems to want to show their (albeit rotten) teeth, since they dont have anything else to show anymore...
